The perfect introduction to the artistic, cultural, and natural diversity that Papua New Guinea offers, this tour begins with two nights in Mt. Hagen to explore the region and enjoy a Mudmen performance. Next travel to Sepik before boarding the three-night Sepik River cruise.

From the highlands, you’ll travel to the coast and fly directly to Alotau, where you will be transferred to Milne Bay for three relaxing nights at Tawali Resort.
